Description

Lowcountry storyteller Delores B. Nevils and acclaimed artist Jonathan Green collaborate to share the story of Amadeus, a loud and proud leghorn rooster who comes to live with a widow lady in the Corners community of St. Helena Island on the South Carolina coast. The widow lady's dogs—Kane and Able—and cats—Mae Liza, Scooter, and Pumpkin—are unhappy with the arrival of this new resident in their yard. Amadeus makes himself at home and becomes the pride of the neighborhood. When the widow lady comes to welcome Amadeus and his constant cock-a-doodle-dooing, a rivalry develops between the rooster and the original residents of the yard, with unexpected results. The cautionary story of Amadeus teaches a valuable lesson for readers of all ages about what can be lost without cooperation and friendship. As the characters learn from the consequences of their actions, if you do not take care of everyone and everything around you, then you just might end up with nothing.

Amadeus
The Leghorn Rooster
Delores B. Nevils
Illustrated by Jonathan Green
The University of South Carolina Press
On the island of St. Helena, South Carolina, there is a widow lady who lives in a tiny cottage that has twenty-six windows. A ramp, painted red, leads to the doorway.
Clusters of pink and red azaleas and yellow forsythia line the circular drive. In the springtime, the widow lady s yard is a wonderland of pretty colors.
Palmetto trees, South Carolina s state tree, surround the cottage. From the many windows, the widow lady watches the tall palmettos bow and sway, bow and sway, when strong winds blow in from the Atlantic Ocean. The trees wave to passersby, inviting them to come into the tiny cottage for a visit.
